Tom shines as SunWorks bursary student for 2022

Friday 09 December 2022

Tom Bullock has been this year’s SunWorks bursary student, successfully completing three weeks’ work experience at the Jersey-based solar photovoltaic firm.

Any student considering a career in renewable energy can apply to be next year’s SunWorks bursar in January.

Mr Bullock, who is studying Aerospace Engineering at the University of Nottingham, joined the solar PV design, installation and maintenance company in July 2022.

Managing Director Mark Brandon said: “Tom experienced all aspects of the business from surveying properties, to designing PV systems and then assisting the wider team to install solar panels on roofs.

“He impressed everyone at SunWorks, thus the team enjoyed having him onboard."

He added: “One key strength Tom had was being inquisitive and asking plenty of questions, although he was never far from knowing the answers.

“SunWorks continually work on solar in all different aspects: off-grid, residential and commercial, so no day is ever the same! Therefore, the SunWorks bursary scheme is a great starter for students who are considering a career in renewable energy and is the only scheme of its kind in the island at present. 

On top of the work experience, the bursary student is eligible to receive £1,500 upon completion along with business references and an excellent addition to a CV.
